The Carolina Hurricanes today find themselves in the nation’s capital for a visit with the division leading Washington Capitals. The Washington Capitals could secure a playoff appearance tonight, while our Hurricanes need points to keep hold of their wild card spot.
Puck drops at 7 PM on the Washington Capitals’ home feed of NBC Sports Washington. The My Teams app has your game stream if a TV isn’t readily available. I will recap for you.
|Shot Attempt %||49.9%||55.2%|
|Power Play||21.1% (10th)||16.5% (24th)|
|Penalty Kill||79.1% (24th)||81.7% (7th)|
Here’s how the Canes lined up last time:
Niederreiter – Aho – Williams
Svechnikov – Staal – Teravainen
Ferland – Wallmark – Martinook
Foegele – McKegg – McGinn
Slavin – Hamilton
Pesce – Faulk
de Haan – van Riemsdyk
And Washington’s beat report, Isabelle Khurshudyan, shares the Washington Capitals’ lines.

We’re in the final throes of the season. The Hurricanes will face the Washington Capitals again right after this — then the Washington Capitals will face down the Bolts. Meanwhile, the Canes have dates against the Lightning, Panthers, Habs, and Isles — all playoff teams save one.
Y’all, we are Belibers. No, not that kind of Belieber. Fran Belibi, who only really started playing basketball in high school, won the high school dunk contest at the McDonald’s All American game.

If we attempted any of those things we would probably break every bone in our bodies. Fun fact: she’s going to Stanford next year and wants to be a doctor. Maybe she could repair all our broken bones after we try some of these?
